[LDM #GTG-351701]: Updating from ldm-6.7.0 to ldm-6.13.6

They might not be able to establish a TCP connection to your LDM. They can
verify this via the command "telnet <<your_LDM's_hostname>> 388".

That's the right approach. Just make sure that you understand and follow
the installation and configuration instructions at

    http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-current/

The LDM package is designed so that it can be installed in a sibling
directory of an existing LDM installation. For example, if an existing
installation directory is "~ldm/ldm-6.10.0", then the latest LDM would be
installed in "~ldm/ldm-6.13.6". When all is ready, the running LDM can be
switched from the old one to the new one by stopping the LDM, changing the
"runtime" symbolic link in the LDM user's home-directory, and re-starting
the LDM. Similarly, it's easy to revert to the previous version if the new
one doesn't work.

Just be sure to read, understand, and follow the installation and
configuration instructions.

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
